Manolis Chiotis (1920 – 1970) was a Greek rebetiko and laiko composer, singer and bouzouki player. He is considered one of the greatest bouzouki soloists of all time. He invented the four-course bouzouki (tetrachordo) and introduced the guitar-like tuning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZIkVOw7LoM, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caQ4UPSUMH0

Panagiotis Toundas was a prolific composer who came to Piraeus from Smyrna, and continued to have a great career.  Panayotis "The Smyrniot" Doukas is loosely based on him.  But not the nasty bits.

Vasilis Tsitsanis¨Clouded Sunday Loved like only few artists in Greece after the World War. The song is a hymn to grief for lost happiness, filled with melancholia.
